Electrical highways just around the corner
UK plans to test a new technology that will automatically recharge hybrid and electric vehicles on the main roads and highways, are the so-called electricity highways. Testing will begin later this year and are expected to have a duration of 18 months.The government’s plans go through to bring this technology to the highways and country roads across the country, which could increase use in longer trips. The first trials will not take place on the road, but it will play scenarios similar to those of highways conditions.
UK plan to test a new technology that will enable the automatic recharge of hybrid and electric cars on the main roads and highways, are called electricity highways . British consumers as a barrier lack of charging when you decide to buy an electric car. To solve this problem UK is considering implementing the so-called electricity highways that allow the automatic recharging of hybrid and electric cars .
Tests of the electricity highways will be held later this year and the safety and efficacy can have these highways also allow drivers with electric or hybrid cars long distances without stopping to recharge be checked Battery.
Andrew Jones, Minister of Transport has said that: “The potential to recharge low-emission vehicles in motion offers very interesting possibilities. The government will invest about 500 million pounds over the next five years for the United Kingdom is at the forefront of this technology, which will help create jobs and growth in the sector. As this study shows, we continue to explore options to improve the movement and to make available low emission cars to families and businesses. ”
Testing will begin later this year and are expected to have a duration of 18 months. The vehicles to be used during these months will be equipped with wireless technology and equipment installed under the road to reproduce the conditions of the highways will be tested.
